Central Gold Coast

This is Steve’s “second career” as a specialist broker with ResortBrokers and, in between, he successfully ran the management rights and renovated a landmark Brisbane building which was in desperate need of TLC and a new direction.

He’s a broker who understands better than most what it takes to run a management rights business and also what it takes to buy and sell one which means he is perfectly equipped to help vendors and purchasers.

During his second stint with ResortBrokers which began in 2019, Steve has demonstrated his deep knowledge and passion for the management rights industry by settling on 10 deals worth a total of $12 million.

From ad man to high-achieving business broker to successful management rights operator, Steve Campbell has demonstrated an enduring commitment to the accommodation business and property sector.

His path has been a deliberate process of learning, expanding his specialist skill set and driving growth. So it was with open arms that, in mid-2019, ResortBrokers welcomed him back.

We’d first known Steve in 2011, when he joined ResortBrokers after spending a decade in TV commercial production. With a young family, he was ready to chase new opportunities.

His instinct for sales saw him named our ‘Rookie of the Year’ in 2012 and he went on to be one of our most successful brokers. Before taking his next career leap, Steve sold and settled more than 20 businesses in just 12 months.

“I became very passionate about the industry and, to feed my thirst for knowledge and experience, I left ResortBrokers in 2016 to purchase and run my own management rights business,” he says. That business was The Ridge On Leichhardt in Brisbane’s Spring Hill, a landmark building desperately in need of TLC and a new direction.

Steve restored relationships with unit owners, negotiated new 25-year agreements, did extensive repairs and renovations, oversaw the refurbishment of 42 hotel rooms, all foyers and amenities, and rebranded the business. The turnaround was exceptional, evident in his growth of the letting pool from 33 to 52 units in three short years.

Having gained comprehensive, first-hand knowledge and experience, it was time to return to the sales arena.

And where better to do that than the epicentre of management rights in Australia – Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and surrounding suburbs on the Gold Coast? With his ‘operator’s eye’, he brings a unique and valuable edge to ResortBrokers’ established Gold Coast team.
